Well done, Gavin! While it’s inspirational to focus on the nobility and tenacity of the lonely (and talented!) artist like Hemingway, my understanding is that he was also an alcoholic who drank a lot and was maybe abusive to others. But maybe that story is grist for another strip. Again I thank you for bringing such thoughtful narratives & themes to the genre of the comic strip! Namaste!
Sometimes, you don’t need a bigger boat.
Determination is the base of all success.
Nice reference to “the old man and the sea”.
The artist doesn’t understand boats. Ernie would have had to ride that fish if he hoped to get home again.
“The Old Man and the Sea” as autobiography
Just discovered this charming web ‘comic’…it’s different than anything else I’ve read so I’d like a different genre term. Oh well. I plan on spreading the word.
